the myth of simplicity

In the past two days I’ve given away a desktop and a laptop, settling on a late-model laptop that I purchased refurbished and modified extensively, voiding the warranty no more than ten minutes after opening the box. This conjures up the illusion that I’ve somehow stripped away a few tendrils of attachment to the Material World, that I’ve somehow created further distance from its excesses. The fact is that there is always a smart phone in my pocket, and a tablet not too far away. I am hopelessly consumed with connectivity, utterly complicit with The Machine.
